My wife and I listened to the audiobook version during our commute using the Libby App. She has a copy of this book too.

Being a fan of Jesus is not enough, and that true discipleship requires a complete surrender to Christ and His teachings.

The book is divided into three parts, each of which focuses on a different aspect of being a true follower of Jesus. The first part, titled “D.T.R. (Define the Relationship),” asks readers to examine their relationship with Jesus and determine whether they are truly committed to following Him. Idleman stresses that being a fan of Jesus is not enough; one must be willing to surrender their life completely to Him.

The second part of the book, “The Fine Print,” explores the true cost of following Jesus. Idleman argues that many people are willing to follow Jesus as long as it is convenient or comfortable for them, but are not willing to make the sacrifices that true discipleship requires. He urges readers to consider the sacrifices that they may need to make in order to fully follow Jesus.

The final section of the book, “Gods at War,” discusses the various idols that people may have in their lives that prevent them from fully following Jesus. Idleman argues that these idols, whether they be money, success, or relationships, can easily take the place of God in one’s life and prevent them from fully committing to Him.

Throughout the book, Idleman uses personal stories and examples to illustrate his points and to connect with readers on a personal level.

Throughout the book, Idleman uses personal anecdotes, scripture, and practical examples to illustrate the difference between being a fan and being a follower of Jesus. He shows that being a fan of Jesus is easy – it requires little commitment and no sacrifice. However, being a follower of Jesus requires a complete transformation of one’s life.

One of the key themes of the book is the idea that following Jesus means denying oneself and taking up one’s cross. This means putting aside our own desires and ambitions and submitting to God’s will. Idleman argues that this is a difficult and often painful process, but it is necessary for true discipleship.

Another important theme of the book is the importance of obedience. Idleman argues that true followers of Jesus obey His commands, even when it is difficult or unpopular. He shows that obedience is not just a matter of following rules, but it is an expression of our love for God.

Not a Fan is a challenging and thought-provoking book that will make readers question their commitment to Jesus. It is a reminder that being a Christian is not about attending church on Sundays or wearing a cross around our necks. Instead, it is about a radical transformation of our lives.
